Nothing wrong with wolf. I pulled a 3 shot, 3/8" group at 100 yards with 62gr during a precision rifle class.

I've had nothing but trouble with tula. It kept sticking in the chamber of my DPMS A2 carbine, and the extractor would rip the rim off. Chamber was squeaky clean. Stuff got stuck in my buddies White Oak chamber too.

I gotta differ. Wolf 62 grain FMJ .223 is the only cartridge I've had trouble with in my ARs. It caused my BCM middy to s

I gotta differ. Wolf 62 grain FMJ .223 is the only cartridge I've had trouble with in my ARs. It caused my BCM middy to short stroke quite A bit.

I gave the gun a good a good cleaning and changed lubes to a much lighter regimine and it did help, but still failed to go into full battery a few times during rapid fire.

BUT, Why buy wolf, when there is decent mil-surp brass cased ammo on sale everywhere??

AIM, Surplus Arms and Ammo are the main two spots.

I reload. That said, the ground here is covered with deep snow all winter. I just hate to donate brass to mother earth. My winter .223s are Herters. They were down to $3.99 the last time I was down to Provo,Ut.

I would rather spen $179 a case than roughly $300. Well honestly Id rather spend $300 on bras ammo but financially the $179 a case is more attractive. I just ran through a case of ammo just shy of $400. I will admit its more fun shooting the cheap stuff. Im not going $.40, $.40 $.40, everytime I pull the trigger. $12 every half minute gets expensive and makes for a short day.

The prices at the bulk ammo places always vary. A dealer that had the best price yesterday may not be cheapest today. So I just have a bunch of companies bookmarked and check them all before I buy.

I've also been very happy with these folks: SGAmmo.com | Family Owned and Operated, Stillwater Oklahoma

PMC is good stuff. Great price and more bang for the buck. Pun intended! Enjoy
